Financial Aid - Undergraduate

In order to assist students who are unable to meet the cost of financing a college education, the Office of Student Financial Aid administers an extensive program of scholarships, grants, loans and part-time employment opportunities. Demonstrated financial need is the primary factor used in the awarding of financial aid, although some scholarships are given each year in recognition of superior academic achievement or special talent. At Rhode Island College approximately 60 percent of full-time and part-time undergraduate degree students receive financial aid. Degree students are assigned a financial aid counselor who is listed at www.ric.edu/financialaid/financialaidcounselor.php.
